Hi.


You need to replace the door latch. Parts available here: WF7708N6W

On most Samsung, to replace the interlock mechanism (latch and switch), you need to remove the rubber sea. It has a latch mechanism and an electrical connector on one side. Part is pretty easy to replace. Part price is around Au$70.

Part can be ordered from BIG Warehouse, Allied Appliances, or calling directly Samsung at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

    Hi.

    You are welcome. The door switch replacement is not a difficult repair.

    Let me know how it goes.

    All the best.

Zanussi IZ12 mid program door light comes on.


E40 is a door interlock fault, it is either faulty or the wiring between it and the main board is at fault,
Only way to open door is to remove top cover, and try to force the door open from the inside, if you can see the door latch, try pushing it with a screw driver or something to release it, worst case scenario, is you will have to break the lock to release the door.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

'door locked button flashing'


The door lock flashing all time has nothing to do with the weather, or pipes freezing up, it is a fault with the washer.
It is unlikely to be a faulty door lock, but could be a broken door catch spring or door catch problem, make sure you can feel the door latch in securely.
the other probable cause a fault on the main pcb where you programme the washer.
Another prob that can occur is a fault on the mptor caused by the brushes shorting on the motor armature, this in turn can blow a track of the pcb, and giving you the flashing light prob.
I would start by checking the motor first, if you are satisfied that the door is closing o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WMA13 door lock fault


If the door locked light is flashing , then the main board probably has a fault on it, due to a problem with the motor, or the board itself being faulty.
Recommend calling an engineer.

Time saver on my Hoover Hd Vision washing machine keeps coming on mid wash! Don't know how to cancel it.


my machine had the same fault and seems to be quite common. What I didwas remove the pcb behind the control panel buttons, its held on byseveral plastic clips and simply ensure the ribbin cable was making agood conection from this board to the programmer. My fault was either aloose connection or the pcb was not in the correct position either way,it now works perfect and only took 5 mins work @ no cost.

Machine stopped mid cycle - door light illuminated


this appears to me that you have had one problem and created another, based on what you say i guess the original fault was the pump or a blockage in the outlet system, now you have dismantled the door catch and made that a fault, if possible replace the door catch with one that is known to work, then retest to get back to original fault its a bit like "my telly doesn't wok it must be the on off switch" there's much more than the switch to anything, hope i have helped, if so rate me please

Washer displays DL error


The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.
